Our Top picks are:


Makeup Revolution Luxury Banana Powder

This Luxury Banana Powder is to die for! And for €6.49 it is a complete and utter STEAL! It's consistency is lightweight and buffs into the skin so well, meaning it won’t cake and lasts sooo long on the skin! Its great for setting under eye concealer and also for baking as it’s a loose powder. Banana powder is excellent for setting your foundation and reducing shine as its mattifying whilst correcting redness and pink undertones - it really gives your skin a boost when you have tired, dull looking skin! I recommended this product to everyone, especially because like all their products it won’t break the bank - Well done makeup revolution, thumbs up from us!


Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Makeup Fixing Spray

Do you ever wonder why your makeup fades or slides down your face throughout the day? Well here is your answer! This spray is the sister product for Makeup Revolutions PRO FIX fixing spray. This keeps your makeup in place all day AND acts as a barrier against oil - so it deflects that surface shine for an au natural matte finish - no smudging, no fading, no problem!! This spray is worth purchasing if you want to keep that fresh ‘Just-Applied’ makeup look for up to 12 hours!

Some of our faves from the sister brand Freedom makeup

I Heart Makeup Unicorns Heart

The highlighter you didn’t know you needed, till now! And with a pricetag as appealing as the product at only €7.50, Can a girl ever have too much sparkle? We don’t think so! This magical Unicorn glow - rainbow highlighter is so well pigmented, blends perfectly and is as buildable as you desire! Its also a fab highlight for the inner eye, giving your highlight a gorgeous iridescent rainbow glow.
We heard this highlight is actually made by real unicorns... (okay maybe not, but it’s still magical stuff for sure!)
There is a range of different shades in these highlights, this one and Golden Goddess are our favourites here at Cara!


I Heart Makeup I ♡ Chocolate - Salted Caramel

This is such a fabulous eyeshadow palette, for only €12.. Seriously how do they do it!? - the packaging is gorgeous and it is a perfect combination of 16 shimmer and matte shades. The shades are so pigmented and they allow you to recreate loads of different eye looks with nudes and pinks and all the rest! And there's loads more palettes to choose from in store to suit everyone, so for just €12 we may just have to buy them all!!

Thanks for reading everyone, and hopefully we will see you guys in store in Cara Galway this Friday for an amazing, exciting event - not to be missed for sure! -
